Bedford Town Hall demolition work begins

Two multi-million pound projects, which include the demolition of Bedford Town Hall, are set to begin later in January.

Demolition work on both the Town Hall and the new Bedford Bus Station is due to start on 27 January and will become two of the largest projects in the town centre for decades.

The redevelopment of the Bedford bus station originally began in 2013, with work to date including the construction of a new surface car park and new public toilets.

According to a borough spokesman, the demolition of the Town Hall is the start of a long regeneration project that will provide a number of benefits to the town centre. Benefits will include the construction of a new cinema, new restaurants and a boost in visitor numbers.

They said: “The wider plans also include a new footbridge and an attractive new public space to feature as part of the new Riverside North development scheme. The demolition of the Town Hall also contributes towards savings of over £1 million every year.”

In order to ensure health and safety, the bus station area will be closed to the public during the demolition work at the end of the month.
